A story of violence, aggression and lawlessness: Don Fleming's Fury is a vitrolic account of how the disintegration of our social values and of our respect for the law is creating a culture in which predators thrive and the innocent live in fear.
Danny Laine may come from a respectful family, but all around him temptation lies. Danny finds it hard to resist the allure of deviance, hard to tread a virtuous path when crime and violence seem so simple and accessible to him. Surrounded by gang culture, overwhelmed by poverty, turf warfare and needless brutality, the line between right and wrong has long been blurred: Danny respects no one, but demands that every man or woman who crosses his path reveres him. Danny lives in a world where there are no rules, no one is obeyed, and everyone is an easy target, ready for the taking.
Fury: fact or Fiction confronts readers with a world that lies on their own doorsteps, a world in which feral children run riot across Britain's cities and estates, seemingly answerable to no one, where an ASBO is worn as a badge of honor, assault or theft merely a right of passage. With their acute bloodlust for crime and disorder and a warped sense of morality, they spare their many victims no mercy.
A mixture of fiction and of factual events that Fleming has witnessed or encountered during his life; Fury: Fact and Fiction represents the genuine sense of foreboding amongst much of Britain's older generation who feel at the mercy of a rising tide of youthful disrespect and social anarchy. This controversial and hard-hitting novel recognises the current state of our nation, giving it more than just the casual disregarding glance that our politicians seem unable to muster. Whilst it does not make for easy reading, in part due to it's strong language and graphic violence but also on account of it's honesty, Fury reveals the human side of the news headlines, revealing the fear, torment and anxiety to which so many people are subjected to in order to preserver the human rights of those who seem most inclined to meet out their own brand of justice. Don Fleming's is a voice that must be heard, even if what he says is difficult to hear.
